Hi,

This vehicles engine has a timing chain, there is no specific time that it need to be changed but when the chain tensioner starts to make the chain rattle then it usually pays to check for wear on the chain.
Most vehicle manufactuers that have chains on there engine state to replace the chain every 250,000kms.

Hope this helps.

Thanks

Jason

SOURCE: timing chain replacement

Easy. Nissan almost always ran on timing chains esp the trucks. You will not have to worry abt changing the timing chain ( if ever ) to usually at least 250,000 or 300,000. I seldomly have heard on anyone changing them though.

When is the timing chain of a 2007 1.5 4x4 daihatsu terios changed?


Timing chains do not need changed until they break or get so loose that they jump a tooth on the chain. But if you have a timing belt instead of a timing chain, it does need to be changed before it breaks. Replace the timing belt every 60,000 miles. Severe engine damage will occur if you do not replace the timing belt every 60,000 miles.

Does a kia rio diesel 56 plate need the timing belt changing or has it got a chain


The engine which is made by Mercedes is not belt driven, it has a timing chain, timing chains never need to be replaced unless they fail or the engine is being rebuilt.

2006 pontiac vibe getting close to 100K and feel the need to change the timing chain. Someone advised that is this breaks it destroys the whole engine Trying to divert trouble later.


It is personal taste. Some places recommend that timing CHAINS be replaced every 90K-100K, but others drive until there is some change in their engine performance that would indicate the timing chain and then change it. Since you have the timing chain and not the timing belt it is up to you.

Generally, I will replace timing chains IF I have to pull my engine out of the car for any reason, but won't change it at set intervals.

Does my Civic have a timing chain or a timing belt


It has a timing belt. Recommended to be replace every 105,000 miles, timing belt also run's your water pump good idea to also replace, your engine is also an INTERFERENCE ENGINE which will damage your cylinder head valve's if timing belt goes bad. Hope this was very helpful.

Working on a 2000 Audi A8. Need info on changing


If it's anything like the six cylinder engines from Audi, which I'm very familiar with, and from what I remember of the V8, you have a timing belt that drives the water pump, crank, and exhaust cams, and also includes a tensioner and an idler roller. The timing chains come into play in the cylinder heads. What Audi did was to only drive the exhaust cams off of the crank, using the timing belt, and inside each cylinder head there is a timing chain assembly that is used to drive the intake cams off the exhaust cams. On a periodic service (like the timing service) you only need to do the timing belt. The timing chains are only replaced if the tensioners fail - you'll know this by a diesel-like clatter from the cylinder heads. Failure of the chain drive assemblies is very rare, which is good because they're incredibly expensive (on the V6 engines they're upwards of $700 each). If you're doing this job because it's due based on mileage, don't touch the timing chains in the cylinder heads - only change the timing belt, tensioner roller, relay arm, hydraulic tensioner, idler pulley, water pump, and serpentine belt. You can leave the chains alone.

Belt or Chain


Yes those vehicles have timing belts instead of chains. I have yet to see a timing belt that doesnt need to be changed at some point. Maybe the tech meant you didnt need to change them now. Each manufacturer has their own mileage interval, but generally speaking, anywhere between 60,000 and 90,000 miles they are due to be replaced.
